How The Leading Minds Of Today Raise Their Kids
by Dr Rosina McAlpine
I read a LOT of books and this book by Dr Rosina McAlpine, would have to be one of the best parenting books I have read in a very long time.
Dr Rosina has gathered some of the leading researchers and authors on child development and parenting and asked them to write a chapter in this excellent book. As an associate professor and a Mom, she has the academic background to distill and critique the latest research in child development, and to blend her professional expertise into her life as a Parent. This is PRACTICAL stuff,
not just academic theory.
Parenting Can Be Hard!
Parenting is not easy, we get very little training apart from what we absorb from our own childhood, and from observation of those around us.
Many parents question if they want to raise their kids the same way they were raised, and we want to do better for our kids. Most new parents desperately want to get it right, and increasingly there are children that are clearly not thriving in this fast paced world where information is confusing and often contradictory.
Every family is different - different background, the age of your children, single parents, blended families, and each family has to cope with different stresses or challenges over the course of raising their family. This book is rich with new ideas, the latest in brain development and research and will give you much to think about in your journey as a parent.
Many of you will know of Dr Rosina McAlpine from
her program, Inspired Children: Life Skills For Kids.
You can read more about that on the right hand side of this page.
Parenting Starts Pre-Conception?
Her book, Inspired Children: How the leading minds of today raise their kids
begins PRE conception - Did you know parents already influence their child's chances of success even before conception? Scary huh? But empowering once you understand.
Experts in genetics, neuroscience, and psychology each share a chapter with their own area of expertise and how that relates to parenting, plus they share their own experience as parents.
Dr Rosina has even interviewed the children of some of these parents to get their perspective of how they were raised.
Learn how best to help our children thrive, gain resilience and good self esteem, learn good communication and relationship building skills, as well as a focus on health and education.
There are chapters on emotional intelligence, helping children to manage stress, and inspiring children to achieve their goals.
Many of my favorite inspirational thinkers have taken part in this book - Bruce Lipton, Joe Dispenza, Maggie Dent, and of course Dr Rosina McAlpine herself.
There is so much confusing information out there on parenting, it is a breath of fresh air to find one that has distilled so much of the latest research, along with inspirational, intuitive parenting.
If you only buy one book all year, get this one.
